The 2019 Kamloops Wood Stove Exchange Program has concluded.
Operating in partnership with the BC Lung Association and the provincial government, the Provincial Wood Stove Exchange Program aims to motivate BC homeowners to swap their old, uncertified wood-burning appliances for more efficient, cleaner-burning models.
The Wood Stove & Fireplace Program is offered by the City of Kamloops as a local wood stove exchange program.

The BC Province has announced funding for a 2020 Wood Stove & Fireplace Exchange Program and applications are in-progress. City of Kamloops will offer a 2020 program which is provisional on the city receiving renewed program funding, please check back this Fall for updates.
The program aligns with the City of Kamloops Airshed Management Plan’s commitment to minimizing harmful contaminant emissions from wood-burning appliances. Using dry, seasoned wood in an EPA-certified stove produces up to 70% fewer particulate emissions compared to an uncertified wood stove. Wood pellet, natural gas, and electric options emit fewer particulates than certified stoves.
